Default [Q] Tf701t & iphone & usb hdd

Dear friends

First of all welcome as its my first post here

I really like tf701 even though here in eu it's not as cheap as in us
Anyway before buying it I'd like to post some q.
I have no android experience so please forgive my ignorance.



1. Can I use my usb 3.0 external drive, explore it, do some basic file operations etc?
2. It's usb powered one so do I need any additional accessories?
3. Can I host iphone, transfer music and manage apps?
4. I'm going to Asia for couple of years and I don't have laptop,
Most of the time I will not have internet access
Should I get tf701t?
The other device I'm considering is samsung xe700t1c.
Actually my only requirements are compatibility with
usb hdd, iPhone as mentioned above plus good display so other
Recommendations are also welcome

Thank you in advance for your reply

The tablet has an excellent display. As far as syncing with an iPhone, no android tablet can do that as iTunes is required for syncing with an iPhone and iTunes is incompatible with android, unless it is jailbroken with a certain tweak {I forgot the name} installed, but no guarantee that would work either, if you want a tablet that would be able to sync with the iPhone I would suggest a windows tablet that is running full windows OS 8 if you need to sync your iPhone, but I don't think any would support use of an external hdd, and I would suggest syncing your music and stuff before you go on the trip so you don't have to while on the trip. I have not tested using a external hard drive on the tablet, but I think it would work as long as you have the tablets keyboard dock and a power supply, but no guarantee on this.

Using iTunes with Android - shudder! [emoji79]
